Testimonial from a satisfied customer about one of our operators that took the Telegram Order:

“Great News!! Your telegrams were successfully delivered to our distant relative in Japan because he responded back by mailing a letter to us. Thank you for all of your extra care and for going above and beyond to help us. We are so grateful that you were our agent from American Telegram because you are the Very Best!!”

With Warmest Regards, Gail & Bill F.

In America, Brian Want talks online about American Telegram:

“Telegraph companies like American Telegram (which is really the only US provider these days) archive all the messages they send and provide time and date stamps that hold up in a court of law. It gets immediate attention and is, frankly, virtually impossible to ignore. An email or a phone message has proof of the time it was sent, but not proof of when it was received, and sometimes that can make the difference.”


Western Union no longer offers telegrams, but American Telegram still does.

People still use them for legal reasons, political activism, and personal messages.

Telegrams are FCC regulated and can serve as legal proof of timely contract cancellation.

Contract cancellation is a common reason for sending telegrams. It’s hard to refute notification by telegram in a court of law, as it is a federally licensed means of communication subject to FCC regulations and record-keeping requirements.
